Double your impact.

Per Scholas is proud to announce that Per Scholas Board of Directors will match every donation, dollar-for-dollar, that is made from now until January 8, 2017 11:59PM up to $50,000.

You've read their stories. You've seen what #ajobchanged for them. Our work means so much to so many people because they too understand what a good job is.

A good job isn’t just about getting a paycheck. It’s about having a sense of purpose and self-worth. It’s about joining others to achieve something bigger. And more than anything, it’s about the ability to reach for a better future.

A good job changes everything. You sleep better knowing there is some money in the bank. You have confidence in your abilities. You have hopes for the future.

Right now, many people across the country are overlooked. They do not have a job that meets basic human needs—and cannot afford to pay for lengthy schooling or high-cost training programs. These are the people Per Scholas serves. We exist to give people the chance to have a better future with a job that can and will change everything.

In the coming year, 1000 hardworking individuals will find Per Scholas and springboard to a new, well-paying and meaningful career. Together we have a tremendous impact. Yes, a job changes everything—and you’re the key to making it happen.
